as president obama. >> yeah, joe. david cameron really shocked because it was defections within his own party that caused ta defeat and if president obama decides to take action against the assad regime it appears he will be doing so without the support of our two strongest european allies. after an eight-hour debate the british parliament voted to reject a limited strike against syria. >> why is it that our allies in the middle east like saudi emirates, qatar, kuwait and others, cannot take military action, why does it fall on us yet again? >> put simply, is it in britain's national interest to maintain an international taboo about the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield, my argument is question it is. >> i take a question from the scottish national party. >> does he know if there are any plans over the last few days for any military action before next week, planned at all against syria? >> i obviously can't discuss the details of potential action in detail in front of this house, but i can tell the house that american president and i have had discussions that have been reported in th

the chemical weapon as tack. president obama made strong statements during an exclusive interview on pbs's newshour. >> we have looked at all the evidence and we do not believe the opposition possessed nuclear weapons -- or chemical weapons of that sort. we do not believe that given the delivery systems, using rockets that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. we have concluded that the syrian government, in fact, carried these out. and if that's so, then there need to be international consequences. >> the president also expresses concerns over chemical weapons being used against us here in the united states. >> their control over chemical weapons may erode where they're given to known terrorist organizations that in the past have targeted the united states. then there is a prospect, a possibility in which chemical weapons that can have devastating effects could be directed at us. and we want to make sure that that does not happen. >> president obama insisted that no final decision has been made on a military strike against syria. at the fort hood trial, a military jury se
